Couldn't agree more.

 

Apart from the empire building VCS is grossly inferior to Vice City in pretty much every conceivable way. For a handheld game I suppose it was pretty good, but as a fan of Vice City it failed to recapture what made Vice City so special. Vic is as interesting as a wet sponge compared to Tommy, the 80s aesthetic feels more "cartoonish" compared to Vice City even though there's only a 2 year age difference.

 

In fact this is how I feel when I compare LCS to GTA III too. For me the Stories games while they're not necessarily bad or terrible feel unnecessary and don't add a whole lot to the series' lore.

To be fair, Vice City Stories had more polished mechanics. Player movement felt smoother and more realistic, combat mechanics were greatly improved (probably the best in the 3D era), the ability to swim was carried from San Andreas (albeit more limited), and as far as I remember the handling was slightly less arcadey (quite similar to that of San Andreas).

 

I also think that Vic is a good try of implementing a more humanized protagonist, maybe so more than CJ, and he had some charm. I wish he was a little more consistent when it comes to drug dealing, though, as well as less whiny, as the "I'm a long way from being a good guy, but I don't have a choice" situation sometimes feels too shoved in the player's face.

 

Other than that, I agree. I usually see "Vice City made me feel the 80's, but Vice City Stories made me live it" kinds of statements, but from what I know about the 80's based on pictures and movies, I'd say Vice City was far more accurate, especially for the setting and type of story it tells.

My favorite is San Andreas and I want to give an honorable mention to GTA2. The respect system in 2 and being able to gain favor of other gangs by killing their rivals was a cool idea. One of my favorite things to do was to lure cops into my gang's turf and have them fight the police for me. Being able to modify cars and add weapons to them was another great feature as well.

 

Anyway my all time favorite GTA is San Andreas. Similar to 2, I love being in a gang and I liked the feature that let us recruit gang members to join us in gang wars. I loved taking over turfs and running rival gangs out of town. The return of car mods was another feature I loved about the game. But my favorite part of SA has got to be the countryside. I remember when the game was first announced I was skeptical of the countryside, thinking it would be a big waste of space. But it gave birth to various myths that I remember spending hours trying to find. Eventually I would realize it was all bs, but it was still fun venturing out into the woods and being creeped out pretending at any moment Bigfoot or Leatherface will come out and attack me.

 

And now for my least favorite GTA. It would have to be Vice City Stories. It's my least favorite for the sole reason that I can't save vehicles in it. The garage always eats my cars after only a couple saves. Car collecting is a major part of GTA for me and being robbed of that ability means I can't enjoy the game like I prefer. I liked being able to build an empire though, I hope R* revisits that feature in the future.

6. GTA LCS + VCS (Oily and Cartoonish Graphics)

 

Note: GTA V has made me delete all games and at the moment only have GTA IV for my laptop.

I love 3D era gta games gameplay wise but for some reason my heart and mind loves GTA V only.

I don't even love Need For Speed and other racing games anymore except Forza Horizon and Test Drive Unlimited..

GTA V fanboy kiddo. Have you ever played or even seen the PS2 version of VCS?? Obviously no. Because it has the best graphics in the entire 3d universe GTAs. Also, 3 has better graphics than SA?? You high on weed bro. Do you even know what reflection graphics is?? Here are all the GTAs that are made with different engines. 

 

1 & London 61/69

2

3 & VC

SA

LCS & VCS (PSP version)

LCS PS2 version

VCS PS2 version 

IV, TLAD & TBOGT 

CTW

V

 

Vice city uses an enhanced engine of 3, with greater color palette, better textures & other improvements. Also in both VC & SA, the sunny & orange sky in PS2 versions are removed in the PC version. LCS was made using the engine as VC, but it was broken & many textures were messed up. But for VCS PS2 version, R* made an engine based on the previous one, but it was improved. They also added “trails”. The engine R.A.G.E was being worked on & was finally used for IV.

It’s completely vice versa to me. Vice city was the first GTA I ever played, and I loved it, but it really gets boring after completing the story missions. VCS had tons of side missions, some were really boring, but at all they were fun. VCS is just an improved version of VC. The PSP version somehow sucked imo, but the PS2 version was better than the PSP version & also VC by a long shot. It also had more vehicles. It had 111 vehicles approximately. VC had 92 at all. VCS also had more weapons, more abilities such as recruiting gangs, SWIMMING that is very important, specially in a city like Vice city, etc. The radio stations were both the best in the franchise tbh. But at all VCS is a much superior game for me.

I played all the gtas on ps2, psp and pc and while I do think ps2 GTA VCS looks good but GTA SA looks a little blocky to me. GTA 3 just looks good to me if not to you okay.

I love GTA IV, VC and 3  and GTA SA now looks like a brown painting to me. In My Opinion.

If you think that I am a fanboy, you are wrong.

Its just that I love realistic graphics in games and GTA V and GTA IV have just that, simple.

Here's my ranking list from favorite to least favorite:

 

VCS

IV

SA

VC

TLAD

CTW

V

III

TBoGT

LCS

GTA2

GTA1/London

Advance

GTAO

 

 

Vice City Stories is my personal favorite. It has it's flaws and it's not the best looking game but I honestly think it's the best of the 3D Era. The story was great and it has that same classic feel as the original Vice City (although the original captures it better). The empire building feature was really cool and it kinda reminds me of Mafia III and it's rackets. I really liked Vic as a character and even though he might've been a hypocrite he still always tried to do the right thing. Martinez and the Mendez brothers were great antagonists on par with Tenpenny and Dimitri, but they're also quite underrated compared to those two. 

 

 

I consider GTAO as it's own game separate from V, and I am absolutely disgusted of it. V would've been the best in the entire series if R* hadn't created Online and to this day it saddens me that they're still so focused on it.

 

But since that might not count, if there's any other game I'd consider my least favorite, it'd be LCS (the 2D games are chaotic fun, but they can't really be compared to the others). I was never really fond of Toni even in III, he's kind of a Yes Man and he doesn't have any motives or goals aside from helping Don Leone. The story itself wasn't very memorable (although I've only beaten it once) and most of the characters seemed kinda bland to me. However the side activities were enjoyable, Toni's outfits and safehouses were looking pretty good, and Liberty City looks much better especially with motorcycles and more gangs. Overall it's an improvement to III, but I like the original better mostly for the nostalgia.

Discuss your best and worst GTA according to the story line.

My favorite is GTA San andreas and GTA V (I wish the story line was longer) but GTA SA is my childhood game, can't possibly let it go.

Storyline wise i think TLAD. Best in everything is San Andreas. It formed my childhood, even though i'm 16.

Most favorite: GTA IV due to the storyline, the setting and the soundtrack.

Least favorite: GTA V due to the lack of many activities from previous GTA installments, the watered down physics, the storyline and basically being a base for the cashgrab GTA Online is.

Time for a revision:

  1. GTA IV
  2. The Lost and Damned
  3. San Andreas, Vice City Stories & The Ballad of Gay Tony
  4. Vice City
  5. Liberty City Stories & GTA V
  6. GTA III

So, since my opinion about the order of my favorite to least favorite title isn't not too consistent (apart from the first two), time for a new revision:

  1. GTA IV
  2. The Lost and Damned
  3. San Andreas & The Ballad of Gay Tony
  4. Vice City & Vice City Stories
  5. GTA III, Liberty City Stories & GTA V

favorite: it used to be EFLC, but now it has changed to IV. IV's campaign is longer and the progression is better paced. you're not handed every weapon, friend ability, and location at the start. (however, i still prefer playing EFLC in free roam because i can play as johnny 😍😍😍)

 

least favorite: it used to be LCS, but now it has changed to GTA V. while V is admittedly a decent game, it takes so many steps backwards from previous GTAs that i just can't help but hate on it. my brain gives it a 7/10, but my heart gives it a 3/10.

San Andreas is still my favorite to this day.

 

I've played all of them except Advanced, CTW, and London 1969, and I'd have to say my least favorite is the first one, simply for it being the first in a series that continues to try and improve with every incarnation. Its not bad either though.

I believe that GTA IV has the most enthusiastic story and you likewise change the story relying upon your decisions and GTA SA additionally has a fabulous time story however is more enjoyable to mess about in than IV. 

My least most loved could be GTA advance since its a modest minimal game just fruitful in view of different games and its irritating however it is for Game boy. GTA VCS additionally in light of the fact that it is just a modest idea in retrospect tearing accomplishment from the other game. By:  responsive designs
